And also, I suspect, of making a grotesque, defamatory and dishonest parallel between Johnson and a former, disgraced Tory council leader. This, despite there being no hint of financial irregularities around Johnson, and considerable evidence of them around Livingstone, who you presumably support.
Partisan politics have a corrosive effect on otherwise decent people. Even though you removed the post, it was contemptible even to contemplate it.
Oh cheer up. It was an email sent by a reader that amused me, though I decided it was a trifle harsh. It was up for less than an hour, and the Evening Standard have been dishing out far worse opprobrium to Ken. Of course politics is partisan.
If partisan politics on election night offends you, then may I respectfully suggest that you give the internet a wide berth for the next 24 hours, as it may bring on a fit of the vapours.
Besides which, I can't see how 18 months of BJ in London will ultimately do the Tories many favours. Boris is charming, ruthless and cunning and plays the buffoon well on TV, but he is what he is, and his capacity to cause offence and misread cues will be rued more and more as time goes on.
An ironic, amusing choice can end up ironic for the wrong reasons and all jokes wear thin.
Peter, your flurry of comments which swiftly morph into chucking personal insults about is annoying.
For starters, there is nothing 'dishonest' about me putting up a picture of Boris with an amusing caption, then deciding half an hour later to take it down - BEFORE you even left a comment, because I found something funnier - The Young Ones.
You know what? You're being rude and hectoring and objectionable aren't you, for the sake of it?
Well, please go and be rude on someone else's blog.
